I still do not find the requirement that 'we go to the cloud' (stupid terminology thought up by some advertising twit) to be in everyone's interest. I am a one man band. I don't go to an office, I work at home. Having to softcloud...whatever can be a pain. If there is a problem, then I have to spend my time doing not what my job is, but try computer geekery, or pay someone else to. So, again, why am I being forced to do something not in my own best interest. I think it would be best to allow users to keep a dongle or 'go to the cloud'.
According to the Datacad store webpage, you can still buy a v.X3 hardlock version, but there is a price increase vs. the softlock. Don't know what the future holds for v14.
Hardlock version price increases
+ $200.00 for additional v.X3
+ $100.00 for upgrades from v.12
+ $200.00 for upgrades from v.5-11
+ $800.00 for upgrades from any LT to v.X3
+ $800.00 for first license
Note: These prices may reflect the current sale going on, so these numbers may change.
